“Outnumbered” co-host Emily Compagno called Washington Post columnist Michelle Singletary’s advice on inflation “deeply offensive” after the writer told Americans to “stop complaining” about rising prices. Compagno invited Singletary to visit her family’s vineyard, a small business they operate, to see firsthand the increase in costs and how it affects American family businesses.
JOY BEHAR ASKS KARINE JEAN-PIERRE HOW TO CONVINCE AMERICANS INFLATION, GAS PRICES ARE ‘NOT JOE BIDEN’S FAULT’
